The new-in-2006 Monaco film Premiere film festival is a charity film week, held in Monte Carlo. There are five days of premiere film projections and a fund-raising charity gala in the company of actors and film directors. Monte Carlo plays host to a series of film screenings from some of cinema’s most widely-recognised stars followed by open discussion forums with the films' creators and actors. Proceeds from the gala evening go to three charities: MAP , Monaco Asia , and the Pentium Foundation.
There are roughly 1,900 film festivals in the world each year.
